Social Networking

This app was last updated on: Jun 23, 2017
TapNova doesn't recommend this version of the app.   
New in version 7.1

Introducing a new look that makes Twitter simpler.

New side navigation menu allows you to quickly access your profile, accounts, settings, and privacy all in one place.

Bolder headlines and rounded designs help you to identify and focus on what matters.

Links to articles and websites now open in Safari’s in-app viewer, which makes it easier to access accounts you’ve signed into and allows access to Reader mode.

New, intuitive icons make it easier to follow along and engage with Tweets.

Tweets now update instantly with reply, Retweet, and like counts so that you can easily see conversations as they’re happening.

Accessibility settings are now in a more prominent location. New settings are also available, such as increased color contrast and opening links in Reader View, to improve legibility and readability on some websites.

You can now add filters and stickers on your profile pic to better express yourself.


Twitter is what’s happening in the world and what people are talking about right now. On Twitter, live comes to life as conversations unfold, showing you all sides of the story. From breaking news and entertainment to sports, politics, and everyday interests, when things happen in the world, they happen first on Twitter.

Love this app
Doug.E. on 6/26/2017
Love twitter.It's so useful for things like following the best you tubers like Logan Paul.I also love it because I can keep track of what people are doing. I don't have to go to a friend or go to YouTube to know what someone is doing.I mostly use twitter to follow YouTubers.But twitter isn't just for that.You can also share it with all of your friends.So you can keep track of what your doing.I love this. App, and I hope you will 2
Driving me crazy
Anne2719 on 6/26/2017
Suddenly the images won't go away unless I hit the X in the perfect spot. The X goes away but the image stays. Then have to touch the screen again to bring good back the X and still can't hit it right. Or looking at someone's profile and try to press the arrow to return to a thread but instead the cover image jumps out. X defies me over and over. And it's not like I have ever spatula fingertips. What's the deal? Please fix!
Yanktoon on 6/26/2017
I love it. I wish the updates would remain chronological, but other than that the new update is amazing.
Won't load
Faireanjell on 6/26/2017
My phone has been trying to load the update for hours .. I don't use this app much and now I remember why...
fighting a robot? Ill be back
1hour19min on 6/26/2017
I wanted to try twitter, but my new account was instantly locked out, and then I was relentlessly cyberbullied with popups everywhere demanding I give them a phone number I do not have and never provided them in the first place. I had a horrible time with that, and scrubbed the app and account from my ipad to avoid further abuse. I got an email explaining I was being bullied by an automated system that prevents twitter from being bullied by automated systems. Why use an automated system to bully people if they dont like it themselves?
Hate the updated design
confettikid24 on 6/26/2017
The previous design and layout was so much better, new update is harder to read each tweet. I love Twitter but hate this updated design!
Twitter why?
KioFoxy on 6/26/2017
The new design looks pretty good, but we still need an edit button. Also the timeline NEEDS to be changed. Why? Because tweets are all out of order. I don't care about the "quality" I want my tweets displayed in chronological order. Another thing, you broke the mentions tab on the app, one of the best features and you've broken it. Thanks Twitter.
Necessary Action
Cherry6737 on 6/26/2017
An outlet for many opinions on any subject; just wish we had more characters available.
I'm reviewing the company, not the app
Danny Rdgz on 6/26/2017
Twitter will ban anyone whose opinions are differ from and offend the masses.Case in point: Tommy Sotomayor. This is not right.
Twitter hates Conservatives
Patriot960 on 6/26/2017
The mechanical part of Twitter is fine. It's the left wing bias I do not appreciate. From Twitter overseers.
This isn't good.
Daniel Kaczynski on 6/26/2017
My direct messages are only showing as sent, ones that previously had shown as seen aren't labeled properly. Also not a fan of the new look.
Love itttttt
August Alsina tho😏 on 6/26/2017
I love Twitter even more every time it updates. Yasss

Terrible New Look
timmc94 on 6/26/2017
Twitter recently announced a new look for their app, which they say is "simpler" and "looks better" but is actually the opposite of both. Common tasks take more steps now than they used to, the UI is primitive and ugly, and it has dramatically decreased my interest in the platform in the course of less than 48 hours. It makes using the app more complicated and less fun… especially when you have multiple accounts added to the app that you frequently switch between. If the sidebar was removed on iPhone and it ran the way it does on iPad (with a profile tab, the way it used to be) it would at least be tolerable… but that's not the case. Way to go, Twitter. *slow clap* In other, older news: the annoying "Explore" tab is still here and hasn't gotten any better. Twitter attracts all kinds of users; Personally, I don't care about 90% of what ANY social app puts in their "Explore" section… for example, Instagram's "Explore" tab is full of accounts fishing for likes and reposting other people's content, which I am not interested in and leads me to roll my eyes every time I go to search for something in the search bar that shares that page. Now Twitter is doing the same thing: not only is search moving from its nice place in the upper right, but it's taking up a tab on the TabBar and is just full of Tweets that I have zero interest in. I'd rather just have search separate from that tab and have the option to disable this new "Explore" tab because it is of zero use to me aside from the fact that it is now where search resides. Twitter as a service is awesome, and is my favorite social network which I believe is drastically underrated. I hope they fix the horrible changes they've been making lately, or they're only going to worsen their condition! I have an older version of the app on my computer, which I may just sync over to do away with this terrible new UI as long as I can still use Twitter. That's how bad it is. Tip for users with multiple accounts: on iPhone (or iPod touch) you can switch accounts in one step by tapping and holding on your profile picture in the upper left. This isn't exactly the most intuitive shortcut ever, but it's at least better than the usual method. If possible, I recommend using this app on an iPad instead.
Keeps logging me out
PamelaaaaQ_94 on 6/26/2017
If I close the app once, it tells me to log in again. It's so annoying and frustrating and I can't even enjoy twitter anymore. I'd have to use twitter via safari and it's the worst. Please fix this problem
Don't change a thing!
CandyPeterson on 6/26/2017
Twitter is perfect just the way it is. Don't change a thing. It makes catching up easy & quick and doesn't allow anyone to go on & in, & on like other social media apps.
As_ia on 6/26/2017
Ive gotten temporarily suspended for showing muscles and I've been telling customer support that I can't use a phone to unlock. I've been using this stupid thing for 30 minutes and it's not working.
New Update is Terrible
Chey A on 6/26/2017
While I am getting used to the new look in the recent updates, somehow it broke my Twitter to where pictures/videos do not load. It acts like I have bad internet when I know my internet isn't the issue.
What happened to Notifications???
bigsis222 on 6/25/2017
There was once a time when I could make seeing Mentions Only the default setting. I can't do that anymore and it's annoying. Update: this latest update doesn't allow me to see more than the latest 15 notifications or mentions, at the end of which is the spinning icon from hell.
SecretWay on 6/25/2017
Twitter is always talking about how they want to make this a better place but they REFUSE to look at reports or do anything about people who genuinely need to get OFF and have violated rules😒
I love Twitter
austin mahone 💕 on 6/25/2017
Tourniquet1 on 6/25/2017
Does what I needs for the tweetings
DebsSweet on 6/25/2017
Absolutely love Twitter/Tweetdeck! You will find me there every day 😊
Bad twitter
FbrecF on 6/25/2017
I have the older version on my iPad but my phone automatically updated. I don't like the new UI. It's not user friendly. Too many clicks for profile and it's hard to back out of profiles because the button overlays the banner, causing the banner to open every time you want to leave the profile. Something weird is going on with my feed and notifications. This update is no good.
Re-Vamped on 6/25/2017
I absolutely REFUSE to give this app 4 or 5 stars until there is an "edit tweet" function. This should've been put in an update years ago. Get with the times, Twitter.
where tf are the squares
PokeBallerLuke on 6/25/2017
square profiles > circle profiles it doesnt look good
Discracedpython on 6/25/2017
I was able to use this for a single day, for my number I picked ask later. Now it's asking me and I can't use my account because I don't have mobile data
New update is not an improvement
ninaaaaaa on 6/25/2017
Don't usually write app reviews, but as a loyal tweeter since 2011 I am sad about the current version. Not sure why they took the profile view off the bottom right of the screen... Its something I access way more than the DM page. I don't mind the other update, but why change what isn't broken?
Ugly Update
sammmmmmm123 on 6/25/2017
The new update is not as sleek looking as before. For example, the circle icons are super difficult to frame up your pictures in, and the profile button has been replaced with the messages button which is unbelievably frustrating. I've also tried changing my header picture and I keep getting a message that says i need to try again or cancel, this has never happened before the update.
New update
Mikedbu on 6/25/2017
This update is so terrible please, please fix ASAP
No one asked for this
Lovemeyu on 6/25/2017
Instead of listening to our complaints they did something no one asked for, change the layout again!!!
I gotcha
Right92 on 6/25/2017
I gotcha gotcha and wy
New update :(
Dumbmey on 6/25/2017
The new update kinda bothers me because there's no profile button. You have to pull the side bar over. And the new profile picture is circle. NOT MY FAV UPDATE
By scofieldburows
scofieldburows on 6/25/2017
My followers aren't getting any of my message alerts this has never happened to me before. The new update is terrible it has a lot of glitches that need to be fixed as soon as possible
iPod Touch User 8654 on 6/25/2017
The new layout looks like complete crap. Did you make a survey and ask what used wanted least and then make based off that? At least put the icon to user profiles back on the bottom.
Too Many Ads
LittlePretty__ on 6/25/2017
I see an ad every five tweets, and they are never even something I'm interested in, like seriously why would I follow a cold cereal company on Twitter? It's gotten ridiculously out of control where my timeline is as many ads as accounts I follow; the ads have diminished my Twitter experience.
False App
jason gura on 6/25/2017
We Don't Need Twitter And Face Book Its Fake Anyways I Was Only On For A Short Time Any Ways
Image error
Aleme Najimi on 6/25/2017
My account isn't set to block "sensitive" content such as a women's chest. Yet on this app it's annoyingly blocked and it's not when I use Twitter with the browser. Also the new layout looks horrible, switch back to the one before this latest update it was perfect.
NMHColorado on 6/25/2017
Can you fix the likes please
MathewM354 on 6/25/2017
When I got through my likes, it only allows me to scroll back a couple months before they stop loading. Can you fix it so that we can scroll through our likes with no limit? There's many tweets that I wanna see again that I adored...
Your update mad trash
Mac :( on 6/25/2017
Your update mad trash I thought it would fix the notification problem I been having but it didn't and even that the whole lay out of the new design is trash too. Y'all was good a few updates ago but y'all goofed mad hard smh.
طارق الحربي ابو سعد on 6/25/2017
Following request that doesn't exist
Shannon Henley on 6/25/2017
It says that I have a following request that doesn't exist? Could you please fix it? Thanks!
Used to LOVE!!!!
NickPorter11 on 6/25/2017
But, now, after the update, not so much. I can't open links! I have deleted the app and closed, turned off my phone. Nothing works. Twitter support within the app is a freaking joke. No help there. Frustrated is an understatement. Fix the problems Twitter.
Dhaioddbai on 6/25/2017
I shouldn't have to press 29 buttons to open my profile. Garbage update. Screw you sadist twitter admins
Volkann on 6/25/2017
see description
Needs more improvements!!!!
Bella Jaymes Cullen on 6/25/2017
1- Make the new look automatic so when you uninstall & reinstall the new look is there right when we open the app!! 2- Give us the edit button so we can edit our tweets if we messed them up in the first place! 3- Go back to using the old web service instead of using Safari it's annoying cause we can already use the Safari app we don't need it in this app! 4- Give us some more tweet characters not all of us want to read essays all the time we would rather have a way to finish our thought instead of being cut off right when we use the 140 characters up!!! 5- Give us a way to zoom in or out so we can get closer or not closer pics so we don't have to exit out of the app & use our camera app to get the perfect picture!!! If y'all make these few changes I'll be inclined to give you 5 stars until then y'all will only get 1 star from me!! 🙏🙂
IRespectThaShtr on 6/25/2017
Everything is good w/ this app. I'd rather them go back to the older look. Don't really care for the update... Besides that this application is a great way to keep up w/ friends and family. Also very good for small business owners when marketing.
00damsel on 6/25/2017
Really like it but would like to request more font options please.
